WFJ: I love it when you pray My Word back to Me

1 May 2012 No Comment

Pray My Word

REST: I went to bed at ~ 9:15 pm exhausted, fell asleep quickly, and slept like a baby until ~ 3:55 am when I got up to use the bathroom. I came back to bed, but did not fall back to sleep so I lay still resting and reflecting in a semi-alpha state allowing godly thoughts to flow through my mind. I was thinking I should get up when Maui, my God alarm clock, got me up at 4:20 am.

ABIDE: After feeding Maui and letting her outside briefly, I came to my desk to journal. I was full of joy and peace. I opened Textpad, iTunes, and the Cool Timer in that order. As I journaled, I began listening to my scheduled iTunes playlist for Day #1 (Kum Ba Yah, Psalms 1-5, Proverbs 1, Acts 1, TPPH Intro and Chapter 1, TPPP 1, TPPW 1) and decided to do the 30 day thinking fast for May that Jerry Clark (Rhino) recommended. I will listen to my scheduled iTunes playists for Days 1-30 during the month of May. Thank You Jesus!

Jesus, thank You for another good nights sleep in a warm, comfortable bed next to Julia in our safe home. Thank You for the love, joy, and peace that overflow within me.

Psalm 3:1-6 (all) – (A Psalm of David when he fled from Absalom his son) LORD, how they have increased who trouble me! Many are they who rise up against me. Many are they who say of me, “There is no help for him in God.” Selah. But You, O LORD, are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head. I cried to the LORD with my voice, And He heard me from His holy hill. Selah. I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the LORD sustained me. I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people Who have set themselves against me all around. Arise, O LORD; Save me, O my God! For You have struck all my enemies on the cheekbone; You have broken the teeth of the ungodly. Salvation belongs to the LORD. Your blessing is upon Your people. Selah.

Jesus, thank You for ears to listen to Your hold Word and for the Bible on my computer. Thank You for the passion within me for You and Your Word. Thank You for the measure of faith you have blessed me with. Thank You this wonderful habit of journaling to record our conversations and our journey together. Thank You for Your peace that passes all understanding. What is a delight it is to spend this time with You. Thank You that You are never too busy to meet with Me, to provide Your wise counsel and comfort. I’m all ears. What would you like to say to me?

Psalm 5:12 For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield.

Joseph, I love it when you pray My Word back to Me. I love it when you set aside your morning time to talk to Me and to listen. Thank You for modeling what you want others to do. Thank You for making it a priority in real terms to abide in Me. I AM your Vine, the true Vine, the source of life for you. My ways are the highways to life and prosperity.

Proverbs 1:20 – Wisdom calls aloud outside; She raises her voice in the open squares.

I AM wisdom. I AM understanding. When Proverbs 4:5 says, Get wisdom! Get understanding! that speaks of Me – to seek Me diligently. One day of favor from Me can be worth more than a lifetime of labor.

Proverbs 2:6 For the LORD gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;

Proverbs 3:3-10 – Let not mercy and truth forsake you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart, And so find favor and high esteem In the sight of God and man. Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones. Honor the LORD with your possessions, And with the firstfruits of all your increase; So your barns will be filled with plenty, And your vats will overflow with new wine.

Acts 1:8 “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

Wow, Jesus, thank You for speaking to me through Your Word. Thank You for bringing it to life. Thank You for ears to ear and eyes to see. Thank You for bringing Me back to the basics. I ask to die to myself today, so that I might rise to new life in You, with You, and through You. Have Your way. Rule and reign in my thoughts, in my words, in what I do and what I don’t do.

Thank you Joseph. Now post this message at Journal777 along with the audio.
